A Warning To White South Africa


You know, I didn't start blogging because I woke up one day and thought I needed to help my fellow South Africans. I've never been particularly altruistic. It was more of a therapeutic thing; I was a recent émigré and I wanted to associate with similar people with similar experiences. Well, over time, you become more enlightened as a consequence of debate and daily exposure to the ugly truth. You find that you slowly start to transform; eventually emerging as an activist that is prepared to take a certain amount of personal risk. This transformation has nothing to do with radicalism, racism or supremacy, but a deep desire to warn your people of a pending doom, and the consequences of their actions.

Granted, we all know that South Africa is on the decline, but many of us cannot palpably notice the change. So we are prone to doubting our thoughts; we've all thought that maybe we have been wrong. So you get, what is called, cognitive dissonnance; when there is a gap between what you observe on a daily basis and what you read/hear. This dissonance is brought about by the deliberate suppression of the news, by government, the mainstream media .... hell, even your peers, who practice self-censorship. We don't want to believe that life as we have always known it, has irreversibly changed. It is easier to deny the change, than to proactively plan for an unknown future.

But every now and then, something happens that pulls you back to reality, and reminds you that the situation in South Africa is dire. This is usually when you think that you should dust off those forms, apply for your police clearance and make progress towards emigration. But then procrastination sets in, and you delay until the next incident comes along. This isn't going to change, and I suspect many of you will read this, think that I make a good point, but you will do nothing about it. That's okay, ultimately I don't care; I have made my choices and I know that even if I am wrong, my family is safe.

Today I had one of those moments, where I had a glimpse of South Africa's future; a reality check. These moments included reading about the gang rape of a white woman, by SAPS members; and viewing some very disturbing pictures of victims of murder, rape, home invasions and hijackings (WARNING: Do not follow the link if you are easily upset). I have viewed similar pictures before, and they always disturb me; but this time it sickened me, and there is a limit to the amount of horror one can take.

So before I give up on this blogging gig, I want to issue a warning. Most of these atrocities are committed with the overt assistance of your domestic help; or at the very least, they are acquiescent. This is not to say that all, or even most, domestic helpers are guilty; but I am not about to tie myself in knots explaining my position. You only need to be killed once, so even a remote risk, is too high a risk. It is my firm belief that if you choose to live in South Africa, you need to get rid of you domestic help. This is a position we have advocated for ages; and is a position, if widely embraced, that would have saved countless lives. Do something about becoming self-sufficient; better yet, emigrate.

I read a lot of material regarding South Africa, and the comments are always similar. People denounce the barbarity but dispute that the end is near; they acknowledge that there are problems but ascribe them to short term transitional pains. But the extent of the denial is alarming. I am also dismayed at the number of well educated people, that refuse to do anything; Chartered Accountants that are adept at doing 5 year forecasts, and yet can't design a plan for their own survival. What is wrong with you? How can you put your families in harms way?

I have done a lot of things in my life, and I have been lucky; but I can tell you that emigration is the hardest thing I have done. Nothing will prepare you for the shock; but when I reflect on my life's achievements, applying to live in another country, and being accepted, ranks right up there with the best of them. I remember the day I was accepted; I got a lump in my throat because I knew I had secured an alternative future. It still took a few years to tie things up, but nonetheless I knew I had a choice.

You have the right to make your own choices; even burying your head in the sand is a choice. If you are single, with no dependents, then be reckless with your life; but be honest, when you kiss your children goodnight tonight you know you owe them a better life. Stop talking tough. Rather set about quietly making a plan.

I sincerely hope we aren't just your daily entertainment; I hope some of you have made plans and I hope we have played a role in getting some of you off your arse, and moving in the right direction.

Very good VI. I agree, like you I think too that I have achieved much in life. Had a harsh upbringing, built up big businesses with no money, employed plenty of people, dealt with many difficult situations and succeeded to where I semi-retired in my thirties.

But, like you say, nothing is more stressful and more difficult than leaving your homeland and it took many, many years of planning and cogitation to finally essentially throw away a university degree, sell my business and properties, lose a lot of money in the conversion to real currency and leave to start cold in a new country where I didn't know the first thing about anything and no one. It is singularly absolutely the most frightening thing anyone will ever do.

Whenever I had those moments of doubt I looked at my kids' faces and saw them happy and knew they were safe and that took away the heartache.

Over time, one does overcome it. I have. I did it with the help of people like you VI and my fellow bloggers who have provided me with much companionship and yes, friendship. People I could communicate with that understood me, who would laugh at my jokes, concerns, somewhere where I could escape my strange new environment and the feeling of being lost, helpless and anxious. ILSA was my little South Africa away from South Africa.

VI is right folks, it ain't easy but neither is living with yourself if one of your loved ones is raped, tortured or killed because you were too scared to face the harsh challenges of moving.

Your life is yours to risk and I agree, for a single person, SA is second to none, but for a family, it is stone last. Weigh your options and decide. Either get active in changing the land in which you live by joining political parties or forming your own groups, hold the regime to account, pester the newspapers for accurate coverage - or leave - because the South Africa we once knew is gone otherwise.

FishEagle said...

There are some twisted politics that have shaped the prevailing world order, which are certainly related to the issues in SA. Even though the threat in SA is more immediate, one still needs to keep in mind that there are bigger political issues at work.

I have no doubt about leaving SA anymore. So now I'm faced with the reality of making it happen and that is a f*cking scary prospect. I may have found a friend that would be willing to make the move with me. It will be a huge relief. Hold thumbs.

Thanks are in order VI, Dobes and the other contributors and commentators on this blog for helping me make this life changing decision.

Doberman said...

@ FE, we'll be there every step of the way.

e said...

I been reading this blog (as well as zasucks as well as Adriana's "censorbugbear") for some years now. I see where this country is going but the problem I have is that I have no where else to go.

I dont have citizenship for any other countries, also theres no country i could go to that i know of to make a living without being super rich here first and using that money to emigrate, so i'm kind of stuck here.

I'm sure many people face the same music, they are just stuck here with not enough money to emigrate or no degrees to get a job overseas.

What should they do?

It would be nice if you could post some ideas for people that cant get out of the country.

Anyway, Great points you made.

FishEagle said...

@e, would you consider going to a country like Botswana? If I can't get out of SA I would consider other African countries.

I don't want to be pessimistic but I don't think whites are going to fight for their survival in SA until it's too late. We definitely need to have options.

Vanilla Ice said...

@e. I hear you, and it disturbs me greatly that I don't have a simple solution. It calls for an article in itself, since there are various options. I will work on one.

Andrea Muhrrteyn said...

E,

For one you can join the Kommando; and encourage as many of the people you know to join the Kommmando.

Thats the first step, is to create a group around you focussed on survival and training for survival.

Doberman said...

Left with no options, I would definitely be looking at places like Namibia, Botswana, even Mozambique. They are quite stable and they have got over their "get whitey" attitude. They are looking for skills and your money is still worth something there. If all else fails, just climb on a plane when the time comes to anywhere and claim asylum. That usually takes years to resolve which will buy you some time. Not the best option but beats death.

AMB said...

I looked at the photos that VI refers to and needless to say I was shaken to my roots. I couldn't work for the rest of the day and I kept thinking of what those poor women went through before they mercifully died. I don't regret looking at them as it helps me to make peace with the decision I made to leave that violent country when I did and I didn't become one of those poor innocent victims. No one deserves to die like that except the perpetrators. I will carry those images around with me for a long time.

@ Dobes... Scratch Namibia.

As a government SWAPO has fared slightly better than the ANC, but the broken promises are now starting to haunt them. SWAPO is getting more and more anti-white, and it is starting to be public.

I think it is a matter of time before they (Namibian whites) get to the situation we are in here.

No African nation that has been "liberated" for less than 50 years (at least) can see the benefit of a white population that is welcomed, included in the body politic and is provided with incentives (emotional and material) to give their best to the country.

SA will NEVER reach that point until there has been a lot of blood spilled and then it will be too late. Too much anti-white propaganda is (and has been) spread by the ANC regime for the country to ever reach that point. It is now a case of the populace (ignorant and disinterested) and the elites believing their own lie as fact.

Doberman said...

I can't bring myself to look at the pictures. I saw some a few years back and the imagery has stayed with me since. It just brings up immense anger and sadness, that we as a people (South Africans, black and white) and not out in the streets in our hundreds of thousands protesting for our lives - literally. Instead, we're being picked off one by one.

While not denying horrific violent crime in SA, the pictures in the link don't all make sense.

In the first pic, the murdered woman is still wearing a gold chain around her neck.

A few pics down, of the couple murdered in their lounge, the TV set is still on, the dvd recorder hasn't been stolen, and the lounge is fairly tidy.

Doesn't make sense.

Gallows humour:

A man who just died is delivered to a local mortuary wearing an expensive, expertly tailored black suit.

The female blonde mortician asks the deceased's wife how she would like the body dressed. She points out that the man does look good in the black suit he is already wearing.

The widow, however, says that she always thought her husband looked his best in blue, and that she wants him in a blue suit. She gives the blonde mortician a blank cheque and says, 'I don't care what it costs, but please have my husband in a blue suit for the viewing.'

The woman returns the next day for the wake. To her delight, she finds her husband dressed in a gorgeous blue suit with a subtle chalk stripe; the suit fits him perfectly .

She says to the mortician, 'Whatever this cost, I'm very satisfied. You did an excellent job and I'm very grateful. How much did you spend?' To her astonishment, the blonde mortician presents her with the blank cheque.

'There's no charge,' she says.

'No, really, I must compensate you for the cost of that exquisite blue suit!' she says.

'Honestly, ma'am,' the blonde says, 'it cost nothing. You see, a deceased gentleman of about your husband's size was brought in shortly after you left yesterday and he was wearing an attractive blue suit. I asked his wife if she minded him going to his grave wearing a black suit instead and she said it made no difference, as long as he looked nice.'

'So I just switched the heads.'

Islandshark said...

These are some of the most brutal images I have seen. Calling the perpetrators savages just doesn't seem to do it anymore...

Viking said...

@E

your story is not uncommon and while I wish I had some better advice, I have to echo what Doberman says. Hop on a plane (Ireland is your best bet, maybe the Netherlands) get in on a holiday visa and claim asylum once you get there.

That's a last resort, though, and you can realistically do quite well in Botswana or Namibia. I would say just apply for emigration to other countries but this has become unrealistically expensive.

Ironically, the numbers of black Africans trying to sneak into European countries has led to tight restrictions, making it harder for you to escape from them.

Good luck, bud.

Great Post VI. Sums it up well and the sentiment is shared and reflected by the other comments as also by myself. I can sum it up in a phrase: Expect NO COMFORT ZONE for the best part of 2 years or more. If you did national service in the real SADF, you will have an idea what is in store for you. If you did not do NS, try and imagine jumping out of an airplane with a WW2 parachute that has never been used. You have NO IDEA if the thing will open. But it is worth it and character building second to none! I procrastinated for 5 years and now I can kick myself for not doing it sooner!

I believe for every person there is a unique solution, but you have to work at it, like a knot, slowly and surely worry it loose. Don’t give up. Get positive and stay like that, the obstacles will melt away.

I tell people still left in SA that they should not let a tragedy be their reason for leaving.

Statistically speaking, every white in SA will be a victim at some point. Make the decision and see it through, no matter how daunting.

Once you are settling into your new environment, you will feel free and a weight will be lifted. I know it was for me.

Most of those photos are S&M porn. The others are dated and it's impossible to see where these incidents actually happened. At least one is of a murder in the USA.

If you want to justify your having emigrated, or wanting to emigrate, could you do this in a less deceitful way and not be a patsy for every redneck nutcase with an axe to grind (quite literally).

Vanilla Ice said...

@Anon 10:54 pm. And you know this for a fact, given that the provider of the pics has verified their authenticity? I noticed you made a similar comment at another site. Either provide proof or fuck off.

To All who are thinking of emigrating consider this. History is always a good place to start and learn from and pretty much in Africa repeats itself 10 times out of 10. Its nice to think SA will be different but the reality really is that its no different from other african countries, the people think in the same way as the people thought back in the old days in africa. Take Zambia for instance, the white man ruled then got chased out, they fell into poverty and welcomed the white man back. So Zambia has done the full cycle and is a peaceful place to live. Zimbabwe is a teenager and still is experiencing what Zambia went through. SOuth Africa is the baby and is just starting its african cycle. So what I suggest is that you emigrate for the time being and keep your SA passport up to date every 10 years and go back to SA in 30 years and retire it may just be like Zambia today. Dont fight it , SA needs to learn a hard lesson, take all those taxpayers out of the country and watch SA evolve into a typical african state.
